Dear Friends,
I started the restoration for a new Speed Graphic, in a Cfpu configuration.
For that I chose in my stock a 1940 Speed #274003. A civilian Vs like Cfpu one's. with a Heiland flash and Heiland too solenoid.
I choose too a Graflex back, with sloatted cut film, like my Rb and Combat because I can use with it a Back pack.
From all the photography I found about CFpu, since they nerver used Black face. (Cfpu was created in Septembre 1941)

So, by the way for another project Signal corps camera PH-47-E (photographer attached to 508th (82°Ab)
For this project I have two other black face, one is #375 575 (1945) and the other one is # 313 588 (end of 1942/1943)
So I will use the #313588 for the paratrroper project.


I have a question, in my data base, my oldest Black face is the #301 412 (at the limit between 1941 and 1942).

So, is somebody knows the first date for the Black Face production ?

The Cfpu and the paratroopert camera must be ready for next June D'day commemorations in Normandy.

here attach, a link to my project :

Best regards and many thanks for your help .
